There is not a lot to sing about in Norway these days. The right-wing fanatic Anders Behring Breivik has been unrepentant during his trial for killing 77 people. But today, the people of Norway were singing a children's song. And as NPR's Philip Reeves reports, they sang it for Breivik.
Anders Breivik says he's proud of killing 77 people last summer, most of them teenagers at a summer camp run by Norway's Labor Party. Now he's testified at his trial that his true goal was to capture former Norwegian Prime Minister, Gro Harlem Brundtland, and cut off her head. He wanted to film everything for the internet.
Anders Behring Breivik, an anti-Muslim extremist, again insisted he is the leader of "an 'anti-communist' resistance movement and an anti-Islam militant group he called the Knights Templar," the wire service adds.
